Human beings are social creatures. You know this. Flirting is something so ingrained into our genetics and has served its purpose since the dawn of humanity's first date. True flirting is when you don't realize you are doing it, it's when chemistry between another person is so good that it just happens naturally. Flirting can be used for attention (something a lot of girls are keen on doing), to manipulate, or perhaps the person was just being friendly and the other person saw it as flirting. It all comes down to intent, like anything else in life.I'm starting to think flirting is so vague of an action that it is just a label that people use when having a conversation. Nothing good can come out of being vague. One person will think, wow he really likes me, when in fact the person says, "I was just flirting." One may also think, if he must really not like me because he is just fooling around all the time, and then the relationship has been terminated. I think the world would be a better place in terms of a social atmosphere if everybody was just honest with one another, I've said it before and I will say it again, there is no time in life to waste on this "flirting" action. Let's get things done, let's do what is needed to be done or wanted to be done.
You got the definitions backwards, mate. A crush is an infatuation over someone that usually doesn't require much information about the person and usually ends in crushing heartache (hence the name crush) while "really liking someone" is someone I at least am acquainted with and really like them as a person.What is the distinction?
Is "really like" more in an attraction sense and "crush" implies that you have developed feelings for this person over a long period of time?
Regardless, I think I know what you mean
